JHI Engineering
JHI Engineering, Inc. (JHI) has been providing professional engineering services to heavy industry in the Pacific Northwest since 1976. Our corporate objectives have always been:
  • Recognize that clients' interests come first.
  • Respond to clients' needs to ensure the continued success of the project and JHI.
  • Maintain continuous communication to ensure fulfillment of clients' expectations.
  • Deliver quality without compromise.

Intelligent Growth
JHI is a modest-sized company that has grown conservatively over the years, largely through projects brought in by the firm's reputation and repeat clients. The firm began as a group of specialists in pulp and paper mill projects. Our continuing expertise and longstanding relationships with clients in that industry remain highly important to us. The firm has diversified, however, by successfully applying the design skills from that industry to other industrial, commercial, and municipal projects.

JHI is a full-service engineering firm with offices in Portland OR, Kalama WA, and Spokane WA. We maintain four departments: Mechanical Engineering, Civil/Structural Engineering, Electrical/Instrumentation Engineering, and Project/Construction Management, with resources that normally enable us to perform projects completely in-house. Our niche in the marketplace has been projects ranging from 10 to 30,000 hours. We are pleased to contribute to a project in any way that works well for our clients, from performing a small task to taking total responsibility for all technical and management aspects of a project. We pride ourselves in being equally attentive and effective on all projects, regardless of size.

Professional Staff
Currently, our staff totals about fifty people, approximately one-third of which are registered Professional Engineers. We believe that people make the most important difference. Our conservative growth policy mandates careful selection of each fulltime staff member based on his or her contribution as a permanent employee. We train each employee in understanding and implementing our corporate determination to excel in both quality and ethics of professional service. We know their technical skills and personal attributes well when we match their capabilities to the requirements of each project undertaken at JHI.
